The Act on Wind Power Compensation Areasprescribes for wind power compensation areas, the construction of wind power plants and the charges payable to the State on wind power plans located within these areas. Currently, the legislation has defined the Bothnian Bay wind power areas as the compensation area. The document specifies that the Energy Authority is collecting a turbine-specific wind power charge for wind power plants built within the compensation area.

If a wind power plant is located within the Bothnian Bay compensation area, the electricity producer is obliged to pay a turbine-specific wind power charge of €50,000. The electricity producer shall submit a notification to the Energy Authority prior to the commercial implementation of a wind power plant. The notification must provide information on the number of turbines operating at the plant. The notification is included in the electricity producer's application for the acceptance to the wind power plant feed-in tariff system.
